I apologize for the silence the past couple of days, there just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! Decided to pull out this oldie, but goodie last week for work, and I’m so glad I did. I purchased this dress a few years ago from Forever 21, and I forgot how much I love it. Watercolor and ruffles never get old! This dress is classy enough for a special event, but also appropriate for a Monday meeting. I always keep my eye out in Forever 21 for similar styles that I can use for work and play.

My parents told the family to get ready for dinner in Market Square last night, little did we know they had tickets for The Moscow Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite ballets, so I was thrilled when we ended up at the Tennessee Theatre. Luckily, I was wearing a dress and heels! The ballet was wonderful and brought me right back to my dancing days. I sure do miss it, but I’ll always be a dancer at heart.

A few days ago, my family and I went to our friends’ gorgeous farmhouse in Greeneville known as Blackberry Ridge Farm. I didn’t have much time to get ready, so I went with my go-to outfit in the winter (a chunky sweater, jeans, and boots). The pink hat really topped it off. It gave the look that pop of color and flare that it needed!

It was my first time visiting, and I fell completely in love with every last detail of their home. Beautiful architecture, amazing interior design, and fabulous styling. It was so inspirational! I hope to have a home that inspiring one day.

Sometimes you just need to steal from your sister’s closet in order to feel inspired. When I saw this brand new houndstooth dress hanging in my sister’s closet, I knew just how I wanted to style it. She reluctantly gave in and let me wear it before she got a chance to, but that’s what sister’s are for right? She’s also the mastermind behind all of my fabulous photos.

The weather here has been calling for lots of layers lately. Adding a collared shirt underneath a sweater dresses the look up, while adding warmth on those chilly days. I prefer to wear collared shirts with a bold print or color, because it really stands out against the neutral knit. If you aren’t one to wear a bold snake print on its own, try layering it first! How do you dress up your casual sweaters?

We have had some beautiful Fall weather here in Tennessee lately, and I’ve definitely been taking advantage. Give me a flirty skirt and a pair of suede booties any day. I recently went  to Toronto to visit my husband and picked up this adorable scarf at Le Chateau. Audrey Hepburn has always been a style icon of mine, so it was only appropriate to add this to my wardrobe!
